LISTEN THIS WEEK:

Every week we highlight a few songs that you should absolutely listen to. In week 33 these are:

Press to MECO –  Sabotage

Genre: Alternative rock
FFO:  30 Seconds To Mars, Disco Ensemble, Holding Absence
Listen because: Unfortunately, we didn’t review their album released today, but the English of Press to MECO always know how to amaze us. This track, with its heavy riff, harmonized vocals and numerous choirs, is no exception to the rule.

Shaemless – Weakness

Genre: Postpunk
FFO: Shame, IDLES, Fontaines D.C.
Listen because: this track is great to shout along to during a concert in the mosh pit. Because that’s not so easy right now, it’s extra nice to jump around in your own room with your eyes closed and to imagine this scenario. So: stand up, close your eyes, jump around and scream: “I don’t need a weakness”.

Mawpit – Mum I’m Sorry

Genre: Alternative rock
FFO: Dreamwife,  Hinds, Sleater-Kinney
Listen because: This young band is about to release their first EP (Common Enemy) and here is the first single. This single is a catchy up-tempo song, which is refined by different tempo changes. The vocals are pleasant to listen to and you’ll probably keep humming the song when it’s already followed by the next one in your playlist.
